spent five days in an rv in the heart of death valley. ive never been to ladakh, but i imagine the landscapes will be very similar. vast expanses of nothingness with a panoramic 360 degree view of the valley. undertook some rather bol treks, one being to a rock in the middle of a river. the highlight of the trip was spending a night under the moonlight at badwaters, the lowest point below sea level in the western hemisphere. the valley shone in the horizon while we camped on a vast flatland.
next destination - argentina.
My apartment in Delhi has had the same watchman forever now. I have seen him grow up. From 40 to 60. I hope he is ok when I get home in one month. The hard truth of life, in Agent Smith’s words - “Life has one purpose. The purpose of life is to end.” In this moment, 3 am, sitting with my worries and petty tasks held close to my heart, I believe this is forever. It isnt. There is no forever. Everything ends, and the realization that it all ends someday makes it finite. And when we know something is finite, you use it more judiciously. Note to self - love your days more Sanjay. You’re growing up with the watchman too.
